Changing Site name in URL

  Asked By: Krista    Date: Feb 15    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1340

Is there anyway (other than stadm) to change an existing site name. I
have a user that changed the name of their department and now they
want the URL change to reflect the new department name. For example,
the existing site is http://portal/site/xxx and they would like that
change to http://portal/site/yyy.
Is there an easy way to do this (bear in the mind that there is a lot
of data and sub links on the existing site.

You should be able to do this by backing up and restoring the site  using either the STSADM -backup or SMIGRATE utilities.

Will this also work for a MySite? We have [a few] users who experience userID changes.
